The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Giants have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The San Francisco Giants offense has been rather consistent, and they’ve won 12 of their last 14 games when scoring more than three runs. Denard Span leads San Francisco with 58 hits, Brandon Belt has 28 RBI and Hunter Pence has seven home runs. Albert Suarez takes the hill, and he’s 1-1 with a 3.18 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season. This will be Suarez’s first career game against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 8-2 in their last 10 interleague games and 0-4 in Porcellos last 4 road starts. The Giants are 5-0 in their last 5 home games and 47-20 in their last 67 interleague home games. The Red Sox are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in San Francisco and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Red Sox continue to have great success with Porcello on the mound, and their lineup should be able to put up big numbers in that large ballpark. The over may also be worth a look in this spot, but the Red Sox should be able to get the job done here due to the pitching advantage.
